In only two weeks I've recreated several of the recipes and have been inspired to push all thoughts of retiring from kitchen duty out of my head. The delightful tale of "how" Frog originally developed and their masterful recipes has inspired me to such an extent, I may never leave the walls of by kitchen again. The simple, elegant purity of always wanting to plate the "best" is laced, like a delightful heap of spun sugar on every page!
I lived in Philadelphia during the heyday of Frog and The Commissary, and they were my favorite restaurants, in a city that was in the midst of a restaurant renaissance. The original Frog was a real treat - low key, 70's eclectic decor, great service, and fabulous food. Since The Commissary was literally across the back alley from where I worked for many years,
it was my regular breakfast/lunch spot. Every day the menu changed - great salads, freshly prepared pasta, two featured main dishes, and the most decadent desserts you could imagine. Yes, the carrot cake lived up to its reputation! Breakfast brought freshly baked brioche and coffee cake, made to order omelets, the muffin of the day, and real Irish oatmeal. And always heavenly coffee. The creativity of Steve Poses and his team was as boundless as their enthusiasm. They contributed much to expanding the palates of the Philadelphians who dined there.
How wonderful that this cookbook is back in print. It has a very appealing Thai/French slant and lots of back story information, along with Becky Roller's charming illustrations. Everything is good. Don't miss the Strawberry Heart Tarts and the Coffee Walnut Chocolate Chip Muffins!
